We need more people like this in the world!

Hope the ones who abused the boy, leaving him disabled, are paying for their crime.

DoctorOfLove: Tumunga: There must be a monetary gain for the "hero" couple. Follow the money trail, and you'll see the real reason for the season.

You do get paid by the state to take these kids in, but it's not enough.


Oh yeah, we're getting rich on $13.00 a day, when baby sitting costs around $10.00 an hour, and that's only for the low maintenance kids.

The reasons we got involved are as follows: I can't have kids, I can't tell someone to not have an abortion unless I'm willing to offer a viable alternative, my beliefs tell me to care for the least, the last, and the lost, and finally, I like testifying in court and putting away the scum that would hurt a kid. I can't be an effective advocate unless I can fully document and that means being around 24/7. You want to lose your self control and hit somebody? Fine, pick on somebody your own size. I'm over 5'7", and weigh over 150 lbs., take your best shot. Leave the snot nosed little ones alone, you scum.

As for the couple in the article, nothing but good thoughts for them.

doglover: alexanderplatz: What is pretentious about the name shaken baby syndrome?

The word "syndrome"

It's grievous bodily harm. It's like calling long term nerve damage in the fingers from a deep laceration "knife syndrome" or brain damage due to being kicked in the head by a horse "Mr Ed Syndrome"

I'm submitting a formal request from now on that anyone who is shot be diagnosed with "Biggiesmallpox" It's on like Donkey Kong.


Of course the act of shaking the baby results in grievous bodily harm, but it's not just randomly grievous bodily harm such as might be suffered when a child falls down the stairs or whatever it is that the abuser is claiming. The word syndrome gets it name from syn- [together] and dromos [running]. Shaking a baby produces consistent injuries: subdural hematoma, retinal hemorrhage, and cerebral edema. From this presentation the shaking can be accurately inferred.  Doctors aren't minimizing the violent act. By clarifying the consistent pathology seen in a shaken baby they can document the injuries and assign a diagnosis, and the medical report can help put the bastard away that shook the baby. Consider that the infant cannot testify to authorities that it was shaken. In short, the name shaken baby syndrome is direct and to the point: it's the clinical signs that are found together when a baby has been violently shaken.

One of my coworkers takes care of a nice who was shaken by the mother's boyfriend. The kid's just devastated. Not much moral difference than murder if you ask me. Her heart might be beating and her lungs are breathing, but her life was taken away from her.

My, you're a patient man. Do you also devote your time to trying to explain calculus to lampposts?
Because that's about the equivalent of what you're doing now.

During my pediatric clinical rotation, I had a wonderful young lady as one of my patients. She had some developmental issues and didn't have use of a lot of her body. I wondered about her mother and thought that parental age may have been a factor in her problems. While interviewing the family I discovered that her parents had adopted her and her older sibling who had similar problems (with full knowledge of what they were getting into). Knowing what they had to do for them every day makes me want to nominate them for sainthood.

I would strongly consider abortion if I found out my future child was going to have profound problems, and I don't think I'd consider adopting a very needy child. I am in awe of these people.

i'm not defending abuse of any sort or to any age. meanwhile i've heard some tough stories of infants that cry for months, require intense monitoring/attention due to illness or handicap, etcetera. you can put just so many bricks on a llamas back before it snaps, everyone has their limit. not everyone has the stuff to be a caretaker or we'd all be ambulance attendants, doctors, nurses, animal shelter volunteers etcetera. again - i'm not defending abuse. i'm just saying not everyone should be around children or animals. IMHO most so called parents are not qualified to be parents. too many parents are all messed up to begin with. too many babies are made thanks to the joys of alcohol.
